Strange New Planet

Young scholars choose a spherical object to decorate with stickers, scents, etc to make it interesting. They write a key to the features for future explorers. Students use viewers to observe mystery planets. Young scholars simulate NASA missions by observing with a fly-by, an orbit, and a landing. After each "visit" teams record their observations about the planet. This is one of a series of lessons from NASA.
